John Bursill reports on the Hard Evidence Tour
Posted: November 24th, 2009
Tonight we welcome John Bursill back to the show to share with us some highlights from the 9/11 Hard Evidence multi-city tour, which included Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Wellington.
The biggest success of the tour was the Wellington presentation by Richard Gage, which drew a crowd of close to a thousand.
In the second half we return to the raging debate over climate change which is now dominating Australian politics, and we take a look at the latest scandal over the release of thousands of private emails between top climate change scientists showing evidence of collusion to deceive the public and undermine sceptics.
In the final section we take a brief look at the work of Jewish historian Shlomo Sand, who argues that the Israeli state has been built on the foundations of myth and falsehood.
